while he can't borrow from the Roth, after a certain time can't he withdraw his deposits without penalty?

Contributions can be withdrawn at any time without tax or penalty. Didn't you notice that I didn't address tax aspects anywhere? My far from humble opinion is that IRAs of all stripes are for retirement regardless of what shenanigans the law may allow. "Can" doesn't mean "should."
